I have to say, I appreciate so far, the variety of cards in this lot. I am getting a bit of a trade off I think compared to the Santa Lot. In the Santa Lot, there were no star cards taken out, it was just as is, but a bit more concentrated on sets. The sets were "mainstream" for the most part, but years I didn't collect, so well worthwhile in that respect.
So far here, there has been a more unique showing of sets - sure gold parallels of 1993 Topps products are mainstream, and 1991 Pro Set football, but the dabbling of promo and sample cards, as well as this European release basketball set - definitely get a feel for there being a more oddity based make up here. Also, while I am nearing 3,000 cards in, I am slightly ahead on "Toronto" keeper cards, and well ahead on parallels, etc. I don't expect normal base card keepers to be as big since I have defined what I am collecting as far as sets go, and unless I come across next sets that have an abundance of cards which scream for me to collect them, the base keepers should come in much lower.
Well, with that overview of where we are at - some more cards from Europe...
I also appreciate that the World Star subset isn't just about US players as here we highlight Holland, Croatia, Sudan, Nigeria, and Trinidad.
That Shawn Kemp photo is great. Again good cards. The All-Star cards are great and ya have to love any Hakeem cardboard.ReplyDelete
